Applying innovation and expertise to solve our customers' problems is our core strength. Air Products combines a history of proven technology with decades of operational know-how and experience across the range of metals production operations.
For current air-fuel applications, substitution of oxy-fuel burners eliminates wasteful nitrogen from the process, allowing higher flame temperatures, which deliver much more of the heat from the burner into the process, because much less heat is exhausted from the furnace in the form of hot gases.
Air Products also innovates by identifying new applications for heat input throughout metals production operations, striving to make them more efficient and cost effective.
“Air Products has worked with us for over 15 years and has increased our productivity 25–35 percent with your oxy-fuel technology. We’re a 24-hour-a-day operation, so we need to contact someone if we have a problem. You guys are just the best.”Larry Wayne Henson, GM, Tennessee Aluminum Processors, Inc.
The Advanced Clean Energy Laboratory is our newest demonstration facility, capable of facilitating development and full-scale testing of combustion systems using actual customer fuels. Plus a remote video imaging system enables real-time participation in testing via the Internet.
